Mixing and Mastering
I am a producer/mixing and mastering engineer that wants to help with getting beautiful music to the world. I have been on this journey since I was 15 in and out of different studios perfecting my sound, and making sure the highest of quality material is achieved
I provide full in depth mixes for records bringing out the full potential of the project at hand while still giving the songs what they need in order to lead the audience the way the artist intended the record to go. I also can brighten up pre mixed records as long as they are of decent quality in order to get them ready for mastering. I also provide mastering services to give the project that initial last push for the final touches of the specified song and or project. With these services being provided all over, I make it a requirement to go above and beyond with sculpting the project to satisfaction in the time allotted in order to have it out in time for print.

Interview with Mixing/Mastering Engineer
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I was proud of working on the God Body EP for DaVinity because it was just open and had no limits just beautiful music and experimenting throughout the entire project.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Instrumental album to expose my beat making/mixing skills further with a more recent touch
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I'm new to this community but I would love to reach out to some people here.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital because it allows you more room for manipulation and the "undo" feature in case you accidentally do something you weren't trying to do hahaha
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: It's different steps every time never the same
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Turnaround time and my answer will come after listening to the record a few times to see what it needs along with asking the client's input.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: We just do this for a check
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Where do you want the record to go? What feel are we going for? Is there anything you want to add to the project to make it special? When do you need this project done by?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Communication is key, and the music should not be clipping at all when sent. I also would like to thank the client in advance for even considering my services.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Interface, Headphones, Laptop, Microphone, and Maschine
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Audio Engineer and I have been mixing/mastering for 5+ years
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Electronic group Justice because their sound is amazing, and I want to see what their process is on just the mix itself
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always make sure each sound is in the right pocket of the song. For example, do not layer two bass drums in a mix because it will cause a muddy bottom, it needs a punchy drum layered with it to make it sit right in the mix
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Hip Hop overall
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Selective listening in which makes a better mix because you can tune certain frequencies out to focus on certain aspects of a sound you may be listening to.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring character, dynamics, sculpting, and bringing out the fullness of the record
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually listen to the record multiple times until I grasp the full feel for the record to see where its going. I then start with the drums since that sets the tone overall for the entire mix and then go back and forth to the instrumentation so that I make sure everything is in sync and not overpowering each other. I also reference the mix to a song I like in the same genre just for dynamic sake to make sure i'm on track since it may have to fit right behind a similar song when it comes to mastering after the mix.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I don't believe in having more than you need so I have a custom built tower with a focusrite interface along with a set of reference monitors, mixing monitors, and headphones. I run Pro Tools for the process of mixing/mastering.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Electronic music inspires me overall because of the dynamics and the effects they can get out of analog machines, I just think its cool how they get the song to where it is after it is mixed and mastered.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I normally perform full in depth mixes along with post mixes at times
